Laura: May 2009 Archives
Coming soon, you will be able to view a library profile page for each WorldCat library. From the list of libraries on the item details page and from your favorite libraries list in the user profile - you can access this new page with even more valuable information about a library including location and contact info, and links to the library's website, catalog and virtual reference.
(Note: This information is pulled from the WorldCat Registry - library staff may want to check your WorldCat Registry information to make sure it is up to date.)
The library profile will also include a list of recent items added to WorldCat by this library. WorldCat will create this list each month for item holding set the previous month - this list will be ordered by items with the most holdings across WorldCat.
If a library offers the WorldCat Local service and the user is not currently at that site, this page will let them know it is available and allow them to execute a search that takes them to the WorldCat Local site for availability information and more.
And this is just the start; we plan to evolve this area with more exciting additions in the upcoming months
This week, May 3-9, 2009 is Teacher Appreciation Week. Help students find a way to show their gratitude for educators by reading books and watching movies about great teachers.
We've gathered up books to help younger children connect with being thankful for their teachers. Plus we picked out a few of our favorite inspirational teacher movies, such as To Sir, With Love, Stand and Deliver and Dead Poets Society for junior high and high school students.
See the whole Teacher Appreciation Week list on WorldCat.org.
